Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon
Tenuta San Guido, Sassicaia, Tuscany, Italy, 750ml
With a fine depth of colour, a refined cassis nose, and notes of applewood and soft spice, this is a magical, almost ethereal wine with outstanding potential. On the palate, it is really expansive and richly textured with sweet, vibrant blackcurrant fruit. Scintillating acidity, beautifully ripe and grainy tannins, and lifted minerality make for an energetic and vital structural feel, while the sheer velvety fruit, silky elegance and sense of purity and length grip the senses. This wine has outstanding potential and is ready to drink now, but will age well for another twenty years!
